Not really. First of all monitor and track how you spend your free time on a chart. From here you can visualise how much you actually spend and can see firsthand how successful you're at reducing it. Use an app like forest to set a period of time when you can't go on social media. Your tree will die if you leave the app so it's an incentive. Set this time when you often find yourself on it. Check have you done all your work, housework, eaten and drank, a bit of exercise or yoga, any other daily habits before you allow yourself to turn it on. It's a checklist you need to fill before you can move on. Delete the apps once you've decreased the time and have eased the urge to be on them. If you haven't, you'll just go straight back to them and break the habit. List other activities/hobbies you want to try or that look interesting and try one of them whenever you want to pick your phone up.
My tablet keeps track of what I am doing so if my time on social media is more than it should be I pay closer attention to how I use my time. In the past I have trained myself to be more intentional about my use of social media. I did this by having goals before I sign on such as checking on certain people, or groups, making a post. I set a timer for myself. For me 30 minutes was my max allowed time.
- Which techniques have you found successful to stick to your to-do list as the day goes on?
- do you often empty your to do list?
- I’m a freak when it comes to organizing and etc. but since I started my own company. I always seem to have so many things to get done which was expected but a to do list becomes so overwhelming when I have a ridiculous amount of things to get done. Does anyone else have the same issue?
- Do you ever find that you’ve put more on your to-do than you can handle? What do you do when that happens?
- What’s a main reoccurring thing on your to do list?
- Do you prefer handwritten to do lists or digital ones?
- Which one do you think is more effective? A written to do list or through an apps to do list?
- How do you get started on a task when you’re not motivated?
- Yeah what do you think would be my best option to writing a to do list easiest to hardest longest to shortest how do you do yours and how does it help you
- Do you give your to-dos a time frame or exact time to do them at? Or do you allow yourself more flexibility?
